I have been a music educator in the Columbus, Ohio area for 11 years. I have experience teaching all grade levels, but for the past 4 years I have exclusively taught middle and high school special needs students.
Because every student I teach has an IEP, my classroom sizes are small and my teaching style is very individualized as a result. I am a firm believer that kids learn by doing, and therefore mainly utilize direct instruction when introducing a new concept.
